SACRED MAGIC OF ABRA MELIN THE MAGE

S. LIDDELL MACGREGOR MATHERS    Book Number: 85576    Product format: Paperback

Translated from the original Hebrew into the French and now rendered into English, this first J.M. Watkins edition was published in 1897 and is sub-titled 'As Delivered by Abraham the Jew Unto His Son Lamech, AD 1458.' It has been described as 'a genuine course in medieval magic.' The Book of Abramelin tells the story of an Egyptian mage who taught a system of magic to Abraham of Worms, a German Jew presumed to have lived from c1362 to 1458. Abraham travelled widely meeting with many sorcerers, magicians and cabalists, the greatest of whom was the man whose teachings are recorded here. Already a key work within Hermetic studies, the text enjoyed a surge of popularity following this translation at the end of the 19th century. Mathers (1854-1918) was a British occultist, particularly known as one of the founders of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, a ceremonial magic order of which offshoots still exist today. His wife Moina was sister of the philosopher Henri Bergson. The book touches on necromancy, magic and the operations of the Qabalah and describes the names of spirits upon whom we may call to obtain 'that which we desire'. Here is magic for illness, love, hatred, battles, damage and how to transform oneself into 'divers shapes and forms'. With all original diagrams, 268pp in facsimile reprint paperback.
